5:48 am
the fight. >> absolutely. breast cancer reconstruction has been a big part of plastic surgery. what these women go through is tremendous. they are some of the strongest most amazing people that we treat and possibly one of the most rewarding surgeries that we do to restore. >> when you're doing these surgeries, in the next room, somebody may be having a cosmetic procedure. is that when you got the idea, let's marry the two. >> as dollars for research started to dwindle and people weren't will be to give as much, i was looking for a way to create a vehicle for them to give. >> reporter: how do you actually raise money? >> we have provided a way for women and men who would normally spend this money anyway to do it in a positive way. anything that anybody gets injected that day, 100% of the proceeds are being donate a local breast cancer charity. >> so they are donating their wrinkles. >> absolutely. >> you have a personal connection to breast cancer
5:49 am
like many of us. talk about that. >> yes, i do. moi mother was recently diagnosed and my mother-in-law is nearly a 20 year survivor of breast cancer. >> it is these kinds of stories, not only you being in the operating room, making these women whole again but we are personally touched, whether it is a mother-in-law, sister or colleague. >> i think there is hardly a person out there who hasn't had a family member, friend or colleague who has not gone through this. >> do you want to take this national. so talk about those aspirations you are entering your third year locally. >> i think we've been able to create a template that we'll be able to take nationally in order to hopefully bring one million dollars worth of dollars to the breast cancer research foundation. >> so far, you've raised nearly $70,000. >> yes. >> it is wrinkle erase for the cure.
5:50 am
this is a web site. you can log on and sign up for the botox or whatever the injection may be. thank you for coming in. some nail biting moments for the burgundy and gold yesterday. >> the redskins were able to hold on and beat the st. louis rams. we'll break down the game next when dave ross joins us for a little monday morning quarterback. as we head to break, let's take a look at the famous dog show here. the austin, texas contest has some different categories. >> they are adorable. >> we'll be back after this. 
5:51 am
5:52 am
hey, ellen, what are you doing? just brewing up some dunkin' donuts coffee -- want some? [ whoosh! ] i'd love some. one taste, and you'll understand. delicious dunkin' donuts coffee. pick some up where you buy groceries. america runs on dunkin'.
5:53 am
that is redskins running back ryan torain deep in the bag of tricks. he is the star of the game along with the team's defense. after a few slip-ups, the redskins held on to defeat the rams. dave ross join us this morning. happy monday morning. talk yesterday is the running back situation now. we are back to the three-headed monster. >> it is good. i was talking downstairs about this. it was a one running-become league for a -- running back league for a long time.
5:54 am
now, you need three. to get through 16 games and have some fresh legs and we saw that yesterday with torain, he hadn't played all year, comes in week four, takes advantage it was. >> do you put him in as the number one guy? >> i think it is a rotation type thing. really, it will depend on what they want to do. hightower will probably not be the home run hitter. hightower will pound you, pound you. >> and are to rain comes in, lowers -- and are torain comes in, low ares that shoulder. >> that was rex to santana moss. we'll talk about grossman throughout the morning. here is torain. >> i love that, just doing it. this is a guy who is playing for time. >> it is a great point. i think what shanahan is saying is i don't care who is listed as the number one, i'm going to
5:55 am
give the hot guy the works. one of those types of throws we've talked about in a couple of week past. you go wow, in a tight game, seven-point game, five minutes to go. tough decision but the defense >> let me ask you one more question. i appreciate shanahan sticking to this theory of going with the hot hand because we saw it with h alu a couple of times. >> how long before that takes effect in the quarterback situation? >> as far as -- >> do you keep a shorter leash now? >> i think it is different because he is the true leader of the team. you don't want to mess with the whole team psyche. running backs are more interchangeable. you can switch guys in and out. quarterback, you don't want to make interchangeable.
5:56 am
you don't want to make it like steve spurrier where you have one, two, or three guys. yeah, it wasn't operatey with rex. i don't think he will make a change. had they lost yesterday going into the bye week with two weeks to prepare, maybe. but i think now they have to keep going with what they have. shanahan, the speculation that you and i have, shanahan is not even getting close to that. >> talk about the defense. tony and i said, when you look at the cowboys game yesterday and the eagles game yesterday. they lost but they were moving ball. the redskins weren't moving the ball but they won. you got to win the game. >> seven sacks. i can't remember the last time a redskins defensive front had seven sackss. you saw in critical situations yesterday, they were dropping back. so he was getting pressure with
5:57 am
a lot of front four or bringing kerrigan. it worked out. the defense, they will really lean on these guys until they get the offense cranked up. we'll hear from shanahan later today and one of the key things he said is you get better with a win and you can learn on the fly. that is what they're doing. they are not playing their best football but yet they are 3-1. that is a really good sign as you go into the bye week. >> i like it. thank you. we'll talk with dave next hour. right now, back to maureen. straight ahead at 6:00, we are seeing a dip in oil prices but some say it is not translating to a sharp enough drop at the pump. we'll let to new york for today's business beat. we are checking your morning commute and your weather. fox 5 morning news will be right back. ck.
